What will I learn if I hire a Lead professional?
A certified lead professional offers two services: 1) an inspection, or 2) a risk assessment. Some lead professionals may be certified or licensed to conduct both. A paint inspection will tell you the lead content of every painted surface in your home. However, an inspection won't tell you whether the paint poses a hazard or how you should deal with it. A risk assessment tells you if there are any sources of serious lead exposure (such as peeling paint and lead dust). It also tells you what options are available for addressing these hazards.
